... et al., 2015a , b ) and beaked whales ( Martín López et al., 2015 ), switch between gliding, continuous stroking and burst-and-glide gaits throughout a dive. In the present study, we found that such gait changes modify the energetic cost of stroking and of a dive. For the odontocetes examined...

...-diving cetaceans dive within their ADLs. Beaked whales (including Ziphius cavirostris and Mesoplodon densirostris ) routinely perform the deepest and longest average dives of any air-breathing vertebrate, and short-finned pilot whales ( Globicephala macrorhynchus ) perform high-speed sprints at depth. We...

Here we use acoustic tags to demonstrate that these whales, in contrast to other toothed whales studied...

...P. T. Madsen; M. Johnson; N. Aguilar de Soto; W. M. X. Zimmer; P. Tyack SUMMARY Toothed whales ( Cetacea, odontoceti ) emit sound pulses to probe their surroundings by active echolocation. Non-invasive, acoustic Dtags were placed on deep-diving Blainville's beaked whales ( Mesoplodon densirostris...
